Stem Cell Bill Gets Bush's First Veto. Oh well, at least it made a great photo-op. If only every embryo could be adopted. If only every lab created embryo could be inserted into a surrogate mother and born into the world. If only these embryos could be frozen for a later time. All this makes me think that instead of embryos using for research to save Michael J. Fox (save him!), they're going to end up in the trash.
Others reject that analysis, saying it would make killers of every couple that produces an unused embryo, and every employee and official who allows fertility clinics to produce and store such embryos.
